Australian cycling shaken up, gets A$2 million loan (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: September 16, 2014, 2:04 am]
Cash-strapped national governing body Cycling Australia has had a board shake-out and will receive a A$2 million (US$1.81 million) loan to help lift the sport out of its financial struggles, officials said on Tuesday. Outgoing president Gerry Ryan, owner of pro cycling team Orica-Greenedge, will step aside for Malcolm Speed, a veteran Australian sports administrator and former boss of the International Cricket Council who will lead a seven-person board from Friday. The Australian Sports Commission, the agency in charge of channeling government funding into national sports, will kick in A$1.5 million of the loan, with the rest to come from state member associations and Mountain Bike Australia, the ASC said.
